Kelly Preston Says Scientology Helped Her Cope With The Death Of Her Son Jett

The religion has come under attack from critics who claim it’s a cult — but the actress insists, ‘I don’t know if I would have made it through’ without her faith!

Kelly Preston and John Travolta turned to Scientology to help them cope with their grief after 16-year-old Jett died suddenly after suffering a seizure during a family vacation in the Bahamas in 2009.

During a new interview with Health magazine, Kelly, 48 credits the religion with helping her get through the toughest period of her life.

“To be honest, [it was] the Scientology Center,” She says. “I don’t know if I would have made it through without it.”

Kelly — who has been a Scientologist for more than 20 years — claims the tragedy helped her put her life into perspective: “Don’t sweat the small things. Love your kids like it could be the last moment.”

A little joy returned to the Preston-Travolta household last November when Kelly gave birth to baby Benjamin — a little brother for their 11-year-old daughter Ella Bleu.

And Kelly reveals the couple had been trying to add to their brood “for quite a few years.”She adds, “When I found out I was pregnant, I was floored. I’d snuck out of bed and then came back and woke Johnny up in bed. We both started crying. It was wonderful.”

“I’ve always wanted to be a mother, ever since I was 11. I was doing commercials for thousands of dollars, but I’d still babysit for $3 an hour just because I loved it.”

There’s no doubt Kelly’s a great mom!

What do you think of Scientology, HollyMoms? Are you a supporter or a sceptic?

obviously like your web-site however you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I’ll certainly come back again.

I do trust all the ideas you have presented in your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for starters. May just you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
